Perth - Darwin

Travel Route: Perth - Darwin

This fairly new tourist area has a lot to offer; beaches, coral reefs, national parks and old mining cities. During this trip it is common to hardly see another person due to driving such long distances of uninhabitable land. There is a lot to experience along this journey. On the Swan river you'll experience an adrenaline boost during the jet boat trip. Dolphins have never been so close to the beach as they are in Monkey Mia, experience the aboriginal culture in Karratha and visit the China wall in Halls Creek. Go to Kelly's Know lookout or the Diversion Dam in Kununurra and end this great trip in Darwin where you can have sunset drinks in the Casuarina Coastal Reserve or picnic in one of the beautiful Botanical Gardens.
